We were up in town spending some of the vouchers we were given as wedding gifts today. It was fun! We have all sorts of exciting gadgetry to play with now, mainly of the kitchen variety. It made me really appreciative – we aren’t exactly flushed with money right now, but thanks to the generosity of others we were able to treat ourselves without being anxious about the cost.
HD suggested we call the new car “Jamie”, as King James followed Good Queen Bess(ie). I think it’s a silly name for a car though, and besides I haven’t seen it yet, I don’t even know if it’s a boy or a girl. This is all a very new experience for me – my two previous cars have both been called “Car” (capital C) – a very useful name that covered both sexes (the Polo was a girl, the Renault a boy. I think). But after Bessie we can’t possibly have an unnamed car, and I think two Cars is enough, it’s time for a change now.
